Today we toured from Marshal mountain to point 7054 west of Blue Point. Our goal was to look for lingering wind slabs and see how the new snow was reacting to the cold temperatures. We found un-reactive wind slabs, and could not get anything to move by kicking on wind lips and ski cutting small test slopes.
North, northeast, and east-facing slopes had wild wind features that were several feet tall, making it very undesirable skiing. Protected areas and west-facing terrain still held soft snow to the mountain's base.
Please remember that there is avalanche terrain at Marshall Mountain. Touring with a partner, beacon, shovel, and probe is recommended, especially if you head towards Woody Mountain or Blue Point.
